Halloween celebrations in downtown Sarasota brought the vampires out into the night. These vampires were dressed to kill in stunning clothes, elaborate makeup and hair. This event was part of the SRQ Fashion Week, sponsored in part by Whole Foods. The Pretty in Dead show was held in the Whole Foods courtyard.
Take models in plain white undies, add a projector displaying clothes from a Google image search and you’ve got an event that’s fun for the models and audience alike. The music of DJ Imminent set the beat for models who danced, posed and generally had fun!
SRQ Fashion Week has lots of things to do, and this event at Home Resources combined art. design and technology. See some of the event activities here:

Santa and his helpers visited The Loft Ristobar last weekend to help Veronica Pastore, DJs Jimi-O and KCONN celebrate Christmas in July. You didn’t think Sarasota had summer nightlife? Take a look at the video, it may change your mind. By the time I left this huge nightclub it was packed. In addition to music and dancing, party-goers were contributing to charity since 10% of the sales all night were donated to Suncoast Charities for Children.
Sarasota Pop Rocks Party was billed as the “party of the summer”. A combination of costume party, birthday party and fund raiser, the event was organized by Mike Drobny, Veronica Pastore, and Jawara Gordon.

On any afternoon in downtown Sarasota, you may have a chance to hear a street musician or a band. On Main Street, we encountered The Cadillac Grainer Street Band with a small crowd who already knew their music. Although their lead singer was not there, they played an original song with a bluesy bluegrass flavor as the crowd on the street grew.
The band recently opened at the Blue Owl in Sarasota for local favorite, Igor.
